thumbnail Hello,

The tactician is of the opinion that his team has shown great balance between offence and defence and sees no need for a tactical change, while reserving special advice for Kroos

Bayern Munich coach and Champions League winner Jupp Heynckes believes that the Bavarians have finally found the formation that suits them best, and has no intention of changing it.

Germany coach Joachim Low recently announced that the national team will play in a 4-1-4-1 tactical setup, but the Borussia Monchengladbach legend rejected the idea of the Bavarians following after.

Heynckes also had a word on midfielder Toni Kroos, urging the ex-Bayer Leverkusen man to become more of a goalscoring threat.

"For me as a coach it is important to put together a team that not only blends, but finds the right balance between defence and offence," the Bayern Munich coach told reporters at a press conference.

"The last few games have shown that we are right there. That is why I am not going to change anything in this regard."

The tactician also rejected the idea of a player operating in front of Bastian Schweinsteiger, and just behind the central attacking midfielder.

"What is the definition of the 'between player'? I have never heard of it and I have been around for quite a few years. For me there are no 'between players' in football. For me, there are clear positions and clear characteristics for all players."

Finally, Heynckes had words of wisdom for young starlet Toni Kroos.

"A midfielder should be able to play several positions," he insisted.

"A player like Toni Kroos has to evolve. He must be like his time in Leverkusen, more of a goal threat.

"This is something that I will push for more."
